I am thinking about selling my little piece of land in sleepy Marathon. It is two city lots with water and sewer. I have had it for years, and had intended for it to be my permanent home. However, now I'm pushing 70 and have a three-year-old to raise, and I have decided to move next year to a big city.
So I am kind of fishing around to see who'd want to buy my place.
It consists of a stock barn, good big chicken house, hay shed, and a large new work shop, currently a woodworking shop. All roofs are good.
And... here's the hitch. It has a half finished house. I started building it before my circumstances changed.
So.. is there a carpenter, or a back-to-the (desert)-lander who'd want it? I am asking 49k. It has a large stock pen with good fences, suitable for equines or cabros. There's a tack shed attached to the barn.
Any interest out there? I would like to move by next April.
Like I said, this is just "fishing". It's a big and new decision for me at a life-changing time.
. If anyone cares to visit, or wishes for more information, please post here and we'll get in touch.
I'm not a big expert in selling so I am doing things slowly. I will post here with a more detailed description of the place, and meanwhile I am doing some cleanup (weeds and old construction materials). I'll keep you all informed.

I'm back here to advertise my land, thought I had a buyer but it didn't work out. The people who want this place, and want their own land to live on, don't seem to have friendly bankers! Now i am packing the shop machines, etc., and cleaning up and sealing the buildings up against any weather. So if anyone wishes to discuss the place, I am at dos_zetasATyahoo.com, or 432 244 9551.
I want to reiterate that this is a perfect spot for someone who has horses or livestock, The big workshop is perfect- e;ectricity and water are it, sewer up to the property line. BUT the half-finished house is a project. A carpenter is my ideal buyer- someone who likes 1910 houses and could finish it. I have also been looking at house and land prices here in Marathon. My $50K is a third of what a finished house costs here...
I suppose proximity to the park is what is making houses here so desirable...
